Calabash Gourd Smoking Pipe
The Calabash pipe is named after the plant it is created from, the "Calabash gourd." The Calabash Gourd is a large fruit that once harvested and matured can be dried, and used as a bottle, utensil, or pipe.
A traditional Calabash pipe is still made from this versatile plant and is hand manipulated during drying to give it the fluted full bent shape, which is now well regarded as the Calabash shape. The plant is then trimmed off flush to make the base for a Meerschaum, Clay or in rare cases a Briar insert. The Large chamber created by the bore of the plant allows the smoke to circulate and develop more than in any other pipe. This large chamber and dramatic curve also stores more fluid and stops any bitter impurities passing through the stem.
You will never find another pipe that smokes quite like a natural Calabash!
